London giants could face play-off

first_img Press Association That scenario could happen if the Gunners win 2-1 at Newcastle and Chelsea draw 0-0 at home to Everton. That would make the clubs joint third and Arsenal and Chelsea would have to face a play-off for the automatic Champions League qualification spot. Premier League chiefs are crossing their fingers that they are not presented with a major headache if Arsenal and Chelsea finish the season level on points, goal difference and goals scored.center_img The problem for the Premier League would be when to play such a match – Chelsea have an end-of-season tour to the USA to play friendlies against Manchester City next week, and then there are England friendlies on May 29 against the Republic of Ireland and then in Brazil on June 2. Neither club would want the season to stretch into June but the play-off regulation is part of Premier League rules. They state: “If at the end of the season… the question of qualification for other competitions cannot be determined because two or more clubs are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored, the clubs concerned shall play off one or more deciding league matches on neutral grounds, the format, timing and venue of which shall be determined by the board.” last_img read more

The move could be subject to a legal challenge. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has struck down similar national selection rules before if it deems they impose extra punishments on athletes who have served their doping bans. CAS overturned a British Olympic Association rule in 2012 that athletes previously banned for doping could not be selected for the Olympic team.The rules come as the Russian federation’s new management tries to mend its relationship with World Athletics. Russia has been suspended from international track competitions since 2015 for widespread doping.The federation last month formally admitted wrongdoing in a case where fake medical documents were used to give a Russian athlete an alibi for being unavailable for testing. It is facing a $10 million fine and a cap of 10 athletes for its track team at the next Olympics.___A doctor at French soccer club Reims has killed himself after getting infected with the coronavirus. Reims Mayor Arnaud Robinet told Le Parisien newspaper Bernard Gonzalez “is a collateral victim of COVID-19 because he had tested positive and was in isolation for 14 days.

He was 60.Gonzalez had worked at the club for 23 years.Reims remembered Gonzalez as a man with the “soul of an artist” who was in love with the six-time champions.___ Beane is donating $20,000 to the community’s United Way chapter and providing incentives for Bills fans to get involved.Fans who make a donation to the Western New York COVID-19 Community Response Fund between Monday and April 17 will be eligible to win seven Bills-themed experiences or prizes.The prizes include joining Beane on the phone when the GM submits Buffalo’s first draft pick.

The fund aids area food banks and provides resources to health care providers and front-line responders.Beane praised the work being done by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, grocery-store workers and others for putting their health at risk to serve the community. Two more golf events on the European Tour have been called off because of the coronavirus pandemic.That ensures there will be no play until the end of June at the earliest.The Trophée Hassan II in Morocco from June 4-7 was postponed and the following week’s Scandinavian Mixed tournament in Stockholm was canceled and will now be played in 2021.Eleven tour events have been either postponed or canceled because of the virus outbreak.The next potential tournament is the BMW International Open in Germany from June 25-28.

She is the granddaughter of former Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Smolov published photos on Instagram in January showing him and Yumasheva together on vacation.Smolov says he is abiding by an “obligatory” quarantine and remains in constant contact with Celta’s coaching staff to follow team protocol. He says he will return “as soon as the club requires.”___The Russian track federation says it will no longer give national team places to some athletes with past doping bans.The federation said Sunday it won’t select athletes who were given bans since November 2015 for a range of doping and doping-related offenses, or who work with a coach who was banned since that date.
